Shops cant get anything. I've been waiting for weeks.

Is nothing coming out of China?

China is fucked. The government has created the problem by over reacting. It now can't back down because it would need to declare victory and if it did, then well the virus would soon prove who really won. Their precious social order faces one an increasing perilous fate the longer the insane conditions President Poo imposes, and then a wonderful backlash when the people realize it was all for nothing. I mean 99% of the masks they are wearing don't do shit to stop you getting an airborne virus, most of the medical personal are infected and spreading it. Hospitals operating as infecting centers. Apartment buildings as petri dishes. Outside is probably the safest place.

Guessing Fireball (lick her) and A&W Root Beer, that might do that.

Corona virus has very little to do with the slow release. I have seen this slower release now for the second year As I saw this same result last year. Ordered the 2019 foil in July 2018 and received it in March 2019. I’m sure the corona virus isn’t helping but it’s not the root cause. I believe it is more to do with global demand and where the new gear is shipped first given the season.

This is going to screw up a lot of kite gear manufacturers for spring orders. Will be interesting to see just how long this delay effects multiple industries.

I ordered some titanium hardware over a month ago and the tracking info says the same thing since ordering - stuck in Shenzen.
